Choreographies of Listening
This workshop explores the somatic, performative, and political implications of collective listening. How can the act of listening become a performative mode? How can the transitions between looking at and listening to affect our ecologies of attention and being in the world?
In this four-hour workshop we shall practice a selection of Embodied Listening scores inspired by US-American feminist composer Pauline Oliveros, as well as listening practices deriving from the artistic research project Radio-Choreography – a radiophonic archive of dance practices created by female choreographers during times of migration and border crossing. Moreover, participants are invited to extend the practice to a listening action, taking place in the context of the Radio-Choreography public listening event.
